ASU's Grayling Love To Receive Post-Graduate Scholarship
Jan. 26, 2005
Grayling Love, a junior offensive lineman on the 2004 Vitalis Sun Bowl Champion Arizona State University football team, is the 2005 recipient of a postgraduate scholarship presented annually by the Valley of the Sun Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame, Chapter Executive Director Dan Manucci announced Wednesday.
Love and nine local high school football student-athletes will be honored at the Chapter's annual Scholarship Banquet on Saturday, February 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Scottsdale Hilton.
A three-year letterman from Sacramento, Calif., who has played in 38 straight games, Love will receive a scholarship in the amount of $1,500 which can be applied to postgraduate work. Love sports a 3.46 grade-point average in finance at ASU. He is on schedule to graduate from ASU in May, 2005 and will enroll in ASU's graduate school this summer. This fall, he will play his senior year of football for the Sun Devils as a graduate and plans to receive his Master's Degree in Business in May, 2006. Love has spent his past two summers working in Scottsdale for Bank of America.
Love, a first-team All-Pacific-10 Conference selection in 2004, also made the-Pac-10's All-Academic first-team. In fact, Love was one of just two players in the Pac-10 to be first-team selections to the league's all-conference and all-academic teams. He was a second-team All-Pac-10 honoree in 2003 and was an honorable mention All-Academic selection as a freshman and sophomore. Love also earned CoSIDA Academic All-District VII first-team accolades in 2004 as well.
In the spring of 2004, Love won the Pac-10's inaugural Sportsmanship Award. One of his many acts of sportsmanship involved asking to give up his starting spot in 2003 so a senior could start on Senior Day.
The Sun Devils begin spring practice Monday, March 21 while the annual Spring Game is on Saturday, April 16. ASU will practice 15 times during the spring.
